Hey friends - it's Pastor Emily from Woodlawn Methodist. In case you are looking for reading material/some Jesus inspiration in these days of staying at home, I've put some devotional books out on our porch. There are a few Lenten books that members of our church wrote, and several others. You are free to take what looks good to you. Also, don't forget about our Little Free Pantry in the parking lot by the alley - if you have extra to share, put some in; if you are in need, take some out. 139 54th Street North

Sad to report there was a grey pitbull that had been hit and killed by a car on 1st Avenue North just before 68th Street right before Woodlawn High School and the interstate. The dog was wearing a blue leash. Not sure if it broke off it's chain or broke away from it's owner.
She called Streets and Sanitation to pick it up but not sure they have yet. The Humane Society doesn't pick up deceased animals. So sorry for the owners. Beautiful dog.
Neighbors: The photo below is of a dog who was riding in the cab of an 18 wheeler on I-20 West where I-20 joins 59 on the ramp of what is called, dead man's curve in front of Forest Hill Cemetery, when the truck was involved in a serious accident.
The dog's name is Bailey and the owners have been in the hospital since the accident. The owners are from Arizona so, completely unfamiliar with this area. After the accident, the dog was seen going into the woods close to where the accident happened and in front of Forest Hill Cemetery.
This dog has been out on it's own for a week. Most likely hiding in one of the abandoned houses and scrounging for food, most likely at night. We don't know if the poor dog was injured or just frightened.
We believe because the dog spent so much time with it's owners, that it most likely has not moved far from the area, as dogs stay close to the last place they saw their people when something happens and the dog most likely visits the area of the accident at least once a day waiting for his/her people.
PLEASE KEEP AN EYE OUT FOR THIS DOG AND IF YOU SEE THE DOG, CALL OR TEXT THEIR NIECE, KATIE POWELL AT: 205-356-4349.
I am also sharing the LOST poster as well as a story that was done about the dog by a local TV station in comments section below.
PLEASE HELP THIS COUPLE FIND THEIR BELOVED DOG.
I am also going to share this on the Woodlawn Community pages.
Thank you in advance for helping this couple find their dog.
Woodlawn United Methodist Church as a new Little Free Pantry in our parking lot closest to the alley. It's a gray shed under the big tree. It's a sharing pantry. If you have non-perishable food (produce, dairy, meats) to give, then place them in the pantry. If you need some food, then check the pantry for items. You don't have to come to the church door to ask - just give and take.
Congrats Club Duq Johnston. We are happy to have you in Woodlawn.
The YWCA Woodlawn Family Resource Center is having a family cooking class tonight if anyone is interested. It is free and focused on healthy living. Let me know if you would like to be added to the list!
Here is our Board Member speaking on the First Day of School.
